Rev. Daniel W. Chui, C.S.B.

Suddenly in his room at the
Basilian retirement home, Anglin
House, on Sunday, December
21, 2014 after a three-year
peaceful battle with esophageal
cancer. He was born in Hong
Kong on September 19, 1959,
the son of the late Pui Chui and
Ying Tang. He met the Basilian
Fathers at the University of
Saskatchewan, was professed on
January 2, 1996 and ordained
June 29, 2000. He then served as
assistant pastor at Assumption
Church, Windsor, ON for three
years before being appointed as
a teacher at St. Michael's College
School while assisting in the
formation of seminarians in the
Congregation of St. Basil for four
years. In 2007 he was sent to
Holy Rosary Church, Toronto,
ON where he became pastor
early in the next year until his
cancer caused him to leave in
2012. After being diagnosed that
he was in remission he returned
to Assumption Church in late
2012 until he returned to
Toronto early this year to more
easily access medical treatment
Daniel was well loved in the
parishes in which he worked
because he was unfailingly
friendly and cheerful
Throughout his illness he
impressed everyone with his
peaceful acceptance of whatever
was happening to him. This
obviously demonstrated his
deep faith in a loving God. He is
survived by his mother Ying, his
siblings Goretti, Sr. Maddalena F
M. A., Vincent, Christopher and
nieces and nephews. Visitation
will be held in the Chapel of the
Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Center,
